The kid walked up to two students pointed a gun in their face and did not pull the trigger. Right at lunch time. Leaves and shoots himself after a standoff with police at a gas station.

My Daughter attends Hopewell High which is part of the same school system. Kids get busted for weapons all the time. School is pure garbage. We are looking at alternatives.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not upset about how the crisis was handled. I am just mystified by the headline.

I expected to read a story where the school administration screwed up, and a student died. Here the administration did everything right, and the perp killed himself.

I don't understand the newspaper's spin. The shooter wasn't responsible for killing himself -- it was the lockdown's fault?

I pulled my daughter out of high school 2 years ago. Put her in home studies and she only meets with her teacher once a week for about 1 1/2 hrs. She graduates in a couple of months and I am so happy she is out of the school system.
